Medaille Breaks Ground on Sports Complex; Site to Feature New Home Field for Soccer and Lacrosse Programs
Medaille College and South Buffalo Development LLC held a joint ceremonial groundbreaking on September 10 to announce plans for a new $4 million sports complex located at 427 Elk Street in Buffalo. The Medaille Sports Complex at Buffalo Color Park will house the Medaille Mavericks men’s and women’s soccer and lacrosse programs. In addition to the outdoor athletic turf field, the site will include a 26,400 square foot indoor field house featuring locker rooms, an athletic training facility, weight rooms, meeting space and classrooms.
More than 40 student-athletes were present at the groundbreaking, including members of both the soccer and lacrosse programs. Speakers included student athlete Matthew Gabalski, a member of the men's soccer and lacrosse teams. "The Medaille Sports Complex is so much more than just a place to play," Gabalski told the crowd. "It's finally a place to call home."
Speakers also included Medaille President Dr. Kenneth M. Macur, Medaille Vice President for Student Development and Athletic Director Amy DeKay, and New York State Senator Tim Kennedy. The event drew media coverage from WGRZ-TV, WIVB-TV and The Buffalo News.
